Yes, that was me.
And yes, I think the on/off is reversed.

The last time I tested this, mod_auth_sspi was at version 1.0.1. When I
debugged a problem with 'excessive traffic' with SSPI, we had some
discussions about this on the tsvn and mod_auth_sspi mailing lists,
which then lead to patches to make the 'per connection' the default.
Could be that when we discussed the introduction of the config flag that
we then discussed about the reverse from what it finally got implemented.
